Synopsis by Sarah Ing
Competition was fierce at the Sydney 2000 Olympics. Especially captivating was the Australian/American rivalry in the swimming and diving Events. Ian Thorpe, Pieter Van den Hoogenband, and Lenny Krayzelburg smashed records, while Inge de Brujin turned in an astounding performance. China dominated the diving events. Viewers watched the premiere of synchronized diving. These two categories were clearly fan favorites. NBC capitalizes on that preference with the release of highlights from the 27th Games.
